One Nomination per person (2 if you really can't decide).

The book you nominate has to be "Published in 2013"

Nominations will be open until the 10th of Aug.

*** Can you host the discussion if your nomination is chosen? ***

To be a discussion Host you are agreeing to:
- read the book you nominated at the beginning of the month, if you haven't already read it.
- start the discussion in both the spoiler and spoiler-free threads by posting your thoughts and a few simple questions for readers to think/talk about
- inform the group if you're unable to host the discussion or will only be reading the book later in the month.

You may also offer to be the Host for someone else's nomination.

Authors and publishers may NOT nominate their own books for monthly discussions. Similarly, no one is permitted to rig the polls by inviting others or creating sockpuppets to join the group and vote for a book/author. Such votes will be disregarded and the book/author in question may be removed from the poll entirely.

Please tell us why you are nominating a certain book/author or why you want to read the book/author.

In my search for SA children's fiction, this one came highly recommended. I asked the staff at Love Books for ideas at the Lauren Beukes evening and a lady who overheard my request suggested this. So I'm quite interested in reading it.
